Choosing to move forward...

Choosing to move forward...

Moving on.

She must've been drawn to you

as hating you never occurs to her mind despite of the pain, tears you let her shed

for you couldn't handle her way of loving.

She must have been drawn to you.

Very.

For she couldn't picture herself

loathing on your existence

though it is crystal clear,

you couldn't handle both her rains

and storms.

Trust me,

soon, she will stop.

She finally realized that love

is complex and futile.

She'll get over you

and she will chide Cupid

from the attempt of aiming

his arrows at her

again.

“Some of us think holding on makes us strong, but sometimes it is letting go.”

— Herman Hesse

The way a man's brain thinks...she does not get over him that easy.

It is him thst can move onward by thinking this way.

Lovely work and I enjoyed the lines 'and she will chide Cupid from the attempt of aiming his arrows at her again'. Perfect.

The verse undeniably expresses such deep feelings...having a poignant taste of remembrance....and realisations....A beautiful verse...and the concluding words...were brilliant adding to the vehemence of the poem...Rightly said ...sometimes moving on is the best aid to oneself...thanks for sharing...a great verse and great words from Herman Hesse....!
